Happy Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday!

mlk-s-house-of-birth

National Park now – how cool is that?

(It is a Federal Holiday and this year it is on the 15th- his actual birthday)

MLK:  Civil Rights Act, Congress, Presidents – whew!

They managed to squeeze one out.

Lots of words, people still trying to mangle it, but it worked.

MLK was the leader of the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S.

I don’t see it as a bunch of laws that are supposed to do everything for everybody.

It’s about Black Americans.   Especially about the ones who have been here building the country longer than most white people.

It does, however, include everybody.

Credit deserved where the credit’s due.

And he got us a day off!!!!

Not bad.

     Happy Thanksgiving, and Happy Thanksgiving to you!

On the scientific side, I would like to see the data.

For example, a live feed of how many people and others are saying those words.

Maps, graphs, spikes, etc.

I would also like to see how many are thinking the thought.

Usually, people are forced into the thought when they sit down to the Thanksgiving meal and say their prayers.

Although I did meet a young man (mentioned in an earlier blog) who begins every day writing down a list of things he is Thankful for (clean water is always on the list), it is safe to say that the bulk of the population waits for today.

It’s a calibration of the mind.

How could the data be used?  Put it in a jar under the bed?  Turn it into a cell phone “app” to sell (to hospitals first until the first round of money’s made)?

The government could use the data to distribute funds and workers to areas of unthankfulness.

On the social side, it’s obvious. Things quiet down.

Aside from the widget mongers, who, as in the game of musical chairs are left standing, there is Peace.

Traffic goes away  – people have gotten somewhere.

They have gotten to the place.

Whew!

On the political side….ah, the poor political side…nothing worth noting here.

On the religion side, well, Pilgrim, this is what religion has been talking about.

(I am pretty sure gluttony laws are suspended- it’s a feast for God’s sake!)

Happy Thanksgiving!

and Thank You!

until next year,

     We were going to attempt another explanation of this holiday but am holding out on the hope that most people can figure it out themselves.

Thank You Veterans.

The Quiet.

It’s deafening.

The sound of Peace.

The Harmony of Quiet.

The exposure of the Futility.

The 24 hour snooze button on the alarm clock that hits itself.

The Message that cannot be ignored.

The Surrender.

The Gratitude.

The Reality Check – (direct deposit).

Something for Everyone.

labor day

Multiple sightings of a “saucer shaped”  object are being reported from the suburbs.
